This took me a bit to figure out the floor and finally I just decided to add a red rug and that seemed to pull it together. It is interesting that when I struggle with a painting, somehow the struggle just shows up in the painting. Sometimes it helps and sometimes it just looks fussy and ruins it. You decide.
This was tricky. The idea of painting a concave surface made of multitudes of hexagonal mirrors was daunting, but in the end, it is all illusion anyway! Someone said, and I often repeat it to myself, that it is all just shapes, lines and values on a 2 dimensional surface when you apply chemicals that reflect color. This simplifies it for me when I am feeling overwhelmed.
This is Furnace Brook Farm barn in early spring with the hillside budding out in a soft magenta and the crabapple tree, not yet blooming. This is one of those quintessential Vermont landscapes. This farm has a very interesting history, which you can read about here.
